Features of these applications include tools for creating interactive course content; a content library and templates, tools for creating animations, 360 degree images, and video; export in HTML5, SCORM, cmi5, and other formats for integration in UM Learn courses.

Pedagogical considerations

Similar to Adobe Captivate, Articulate 360 offers a diverse collection of tools for creating interactive online course content. Although this tool is often used in the context of online learning, the tools in this suite are also valuable in creating online (asynchronous) content for use in courses that do have synchronous class meetings. Articulate can be used to create videos and multiple types of interactive learning materials for use in a flipped classroom setting in which content is provided for students to interact with outside scheduled class time.

The learning materials created in Articulate can be integrated into the LMS with gradebook integration for assessments if needed. Instructional uses include lecture capture with embedded quizzes and other interactive content; creating content for case studies and experiential learning with the virtual reality walkthrough tools; creating interactive learning objects for active learning; and building self-directed online learning experiences with the branching content tools and templates. Articulate can also be used as an authoring environment for creating Open Educational Resources (OER’s), teaching materials released in the public domain or under an open license.

Assessment considerations

Articulate content can be exported as a SCORM object to D2L with gradebook integration for recording of quiz results.
